We live in the “information age”–but what is information, actually? In human terms, one might say information is the food that nourishes the mind. But how is it prepared and consumed? James Gleick has been called one of the greatest science writers of all time. Of his previous books, Chaos introduced a new science and Isaac Newton redefined the archetypal scientist. The Los Angeles Times describes The Information as “a wide-ranging, deeply researched and delightfully engaging history of how we have come to occupy a world defined in bits and bytes.”
